Another Canadian here. I grew up saying Zee, but our English is supposed to be Zed. I generally consider myself Americanized from to much T.V.
Yeah same for me. We learned Zed at school, but we say Zee since we watch too much American TV shows lol.

We'll have to make sure when we do our bombastic retro trailer for MZ that we tell them to say AR PEE GEE MAKER EEEEM ZEEEED.

Actually legit I would have so much fun mimicking those old XP/VX commercials.
You really should do that.
I loved those little video ads.
"Pixel art is ahsum!"
The crazy energy was awesome, and i loved it.
People would joke and make fun of it, but in reality.. we LOVED the quirkiness.

As an Australian I have had a good time looking like a Kookaburra while reading about people not accepting the new engine being pronounced Em Zed, yous are chucking a wobbly all over this? I'm gobsmacked.

I for one welcome being in the right when correcting people on how to pronounce MZ lol. While we are at it, can we change the release info to say "coming this winter"? It's getting bl**dy cold down here :p

I get annoyed when folks in the UK pronounce the SNES like SNEZ.. drives me insane. NEZ.. SNEZ.. ugh..
I refuse to pronounce Z as Zed.. I used to know someone named Zed, so my brain is already fixed to work a specific way.
Also.. all this talk of Z pronouncing reminds me of a Weird Al song. I'd say the name but it'd insult Canadians.

I'm from the uk, i've always pronounced it as 'snez'. @ me bruh :*
also, people should pronounce it however they want (emm zee i mean). I have always said 'zee' for the letter 'z', and to me the MZ title of rm is essentially an acronym, thus, it each letter should be pronounced separately which should be done however you pronounce those letters.

I guess for the snez scenario, it was cause as I was growing up, those around me would call it that, so it was more of a taught behaviour rather than one that came naturally. I had never actually heard anyone call it 'snes' until maybe like 4 or so years ago whilst watching american youtubers :D

Like, I get the spelling, and I can understand why it should be 'snes', but even when i try to make it sound like that, it still kinda has a hint of 'z' at the end. (could be my accent, idk)

Why'd I think you were in Cali? At least now I know you're the same time zone as me. And I WON'T be up at 3am for that, no thanks....well, maybe I will, but not on the computer...toddler girl likes to wake up in the middle of the night wanting to sleep with Hubby and I....(insert my rambling about motherhood)

Not sure, I've had my actual city in my profile here since we opened the forums :p.

So... here we are again, a few hours away from the new announcement and I’m at work... again.

Oh well, preparations for “Operation Pre-Planned Retroom break” is underway...

I hope to be wowed tonight, if the differences between MV and MZ end up being greater than it appears, I might just do planning for my project instead for the next month-ish until MZ's release. (Assuming it isn't an "it's out now" notice- nah, that'd never happen :p )

Seems highly unlikely the release date for this is much if at all before that showcasing stream. So I'm suspecting early August.

Em-zee sounds like a local word which means someone who is eager but also annoying and kinda hysterical. Think bridezilla.
Imagine MZ being like that

I feel QSprite for MV is underrated. I basically am able to use my chibi sideview battlers I drew on the maps and have all the motions available. this'll help a lot with cutscenes.
I've figured out how to reasonably tall-ify chibi sprites on my editor. I like that making tall sprites gives me control on expressing how tall characters seem on the field relative to each other as well as better differentiate adult sprites from child sprites.
doing some wacky experimental stuff in MV right now :kaoluv: I cannot wait to drop what I've been working on
